We are a family of 5, three kids under 7, stayed here last week. Got a large family room, it was spacious enough, clean enough, comfortable enough. The decor & furniture is dated and cheap as people have commented, even though it's a 3 star hotel and I wasn't expecting shag carpets or chandeliers it was below par compared to other 3 stars in the same price bracket. But not the disaster others have opined. And a fan was provided as standard - air con is not standard, this is Ireland.
I would rate service somewhere between good to very good. Warm, friendly, proactive. Facilities were good too - pool was warm & clean and a good size. Didn't use the gym but looked well equipped. Bar and residents bar were spacious and comfortable.
Playground was small and the kids were quickly bored. Here's the thing though, everything else they loved. The pool, the food, the room, the playroom - they were made welcome everywhere in the hotel, they treated it like home. I appreciate that doesn't float many peoples boat but I'm sure it will with many of the moms and dads. I never felt self conscious even the odd time they shouted the place down.
Location wise, just off a roundabout on a fairly busy bypass. Pubs, restaurants etc not a walk away, you'll need a car.
It's a large-ish hotel, part of a chain that offer value for money & service rather than luxury. In the main it delivers on that score, work to do in places though. Its a 3 star, whatever your expectations I would recommend it to families, business, groups...perhaps not couples unless it's simply as a stopover.
